History Research Centre

COVID-19 update – 3 August 2020

Currently we are unable to provide an indication as to when the Maldon District Museum will be reopening. We will monitor Government directions and look forward to being able to reopen again soon.

Our History Research Centre is also closed. Our volunteers will continue to handle requests for information and research via email at hrc@maldonmuseum.com.au. The telephone has an answering system but will not be monitored regularly so email will be preferable.

Our Centre houses an extensive collection of Maldon District records, images and reference material which may be useful for your research.

All resources are available for onsite use only and the Centre is not able to lend to Association members or the public. Film & fiche readers/printers and scanners are available, however internet access is not.

Our researchers are volunteers, and all research fees received are used for collection care and resource improvement.
